Default What is the easiest hydroponics method?

Once and for all, what is the easiest, cheapest, and most effective
form of hydroponics and how do you set it up from seedlings on? I'd be
extremely grateful to anyone who could answer that question.

I don't know the answer, but I have questions. What kinds of plants do you
want to grow? And, why hydroponics?

There's a large indoor hydroponic tomato growing operation in my town. They
germinate the seeds on spun rock wool. When they get larger, they are
transplanted into a larger piece of rock wool.

Take a 3 gallon bucket, drill lots of small holes in the bottom, fill
it up with your choice of grow-medium and put your plant in it.
Attach an aquarium bubbler under the bucket, connect the bubbler to a
small air-pump.
Put the 3 gallon bucket with bubbler in a 5 gallon bucket (so the rim
rests on the bigger buckets rim), fill the 5 gallon bucket with
water/nutrient mix.
Turn on the bubbler and walk away!

Works better than drippers/ebb-flow.
